It's a new Prison in the UK!
Prison vs Work
Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, keep scrolling scroll down.
This should make things a little bit clearer.
You spend the majority of your time
in a 10X10 cell
you spend the majority of your time
In an 6X6 cubicle /office
You get three meals a day fully paid for
you get a break for one meal and
You have to pay for it
You get time off for good behavior
you get more work for
The guard locks and unlocks all the
doors for you
You must often carry a security card
And open all the doors for yourself
You can watch TV and play games
you could get fired for watching
TV and playing games
You get your own toilet
you have to share the toilet with
Some people who pee on the seat
They allow your family and friends
you aren't even supposed to speak
To your family
All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required
you get to pay all your expenses to go
To work, and they deduct taxes from
Your salary to pay for prisoners
You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out
you spend most of your time wanting
To get out and go inside bars
You must deal with sadistic wardens
They are called managers
Now get back to work. You're not getting paid to check emails.
According to this email forward, attached photographs of an attractive modern building show a new prison located in the United Kingdom (UK). The email includes shots of the building's exterior as well as photographs showing the high quality accommodation and sporting facilities inside.
Although the building might look like a contemporary office block or accommodation facility, it really is a new prison. However, the prison is located in Austria, not the UK as claimed in the message.
The photographs show the Justice and Detention Centre in Leoben, Austria. The building was completed in 2005 and comprises court facilities as well as a penitentiary. Modern architecture website MIMOA
"Lucky" Austrian prisoners enjoy not only clean and modern accommodation but can also move freely among their cells and the communal spaces in their designated areas. There are also outdoor courtyards where inmates can walk and sit in the fresh air.
(Google translated from original German) about the prison is available on the Hohensinn Architektur website.
For added effect, the creator of the message has tacked on an old and unrelated humour piece about Prison verses Work that has been circulating on the Internet for several years.
